Lunch at Seattle's oldest bar | Jules Maes Saloon


Jules Maes is the oldest Saloon in Seattle. They've been slinging drinks and serving yummy eats since 1888. 

I've walked by Jules Maes historic building countless times over the years, always curious about the interior of this Georgetown bar. Since our sons are back in school, my husband and I decided to check them out for lunch. The bar is dark, and its walls are covered in artifacts from the past. The saloon gives off an "old timey" vibe. We grabbed a table by the window, so I could get that gorgeous natural light for my food photos, since it was only mid-day. 

I started with a Whiskey Sour and my husband had one of their specialty drinks, something fruity and blue. I liked my drink a lot and it was made just right. The menu at Jules Maes is your typical bar food, but the dishes are all taken up a notch. The food is made from scratch, and you can taste the quality. We shared the Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich. This dish has chicken thigh, goat cheese, bourbon syrup, buffalo sauce, all sandwiched between two homemade waffles. It also came with really fresh and perfectly fried Tator tots.  

The flavors of the sandwich were spot on. We loved the creaminess of the goat cheese with the spice of the buffalo sauce. The chicken was full of flavor and juicy. The only thing we didn't love was the waffles got a little soggy from the buffalo sauce. This was a pretty big sandwich, so I'm glad we shared. The other items look tasty on the menu, too. I'm sure this won't be our last visit to Jules Maes.
